Responsible government authorities like Dhaka City Corporation (DCC), Bangladesh Standard Testing Institute (BSTI) and concerned ministries also recognize this as potential threat to human health and promise to revert this.

Thanks for the encouragement as always. I was sure you would appreciate it since you seem so driven and passionate about spreading inclusive business in Bangladesh. In fact, me and Jawad were joking today and thought about making a list titled " Top 10 Inclusive Business Experts in Dhaka", in which you would make an appearance.

Thank you Yusuf Bhai. I tried to make it as fresh as possible so it would be an enjoyable read. I'll try to make all the other blogs I post here as fun as this, as opposed to the more serious ones I write for RCL.
